Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
For children born in the 3 to 5 years before the survey, VACEV (H10) indicates whether the young child had received any vaccination. This variable generally relates to children who did not have a health card, the preferred source of documentation on vaccinations.
If no health card was shown, the interviewer asked whether the child had any vaccinations (documented in VACEV), and, if the answer was yes, asked about specific types of vaccinations. Note that VACEV is not a summary variable for all questions relating to vaccinations; rather, VACEV serves as a filter variable during the interview for children lacking health cards.
